was very impressed and so grateful for Larry's quick and efficient services. I
had a damaged external hard drive that needed recovery and contained all my
work files. Larry recovered it within 24 hrs and was able to retrieve all my
data. Other companies wanted to charge me an arm and a leg and could only
promise a 2 week turnaround time with no guarantee, where SABO did it in a day
and a half and was reasonably priced. I’m so thankful that I found him and I
didn’t go anywhere else.

I had some dead hard drives and brought them in. He fixed them super
fast and I am extremely pleased with his work. All my data was there and
usable. Excellent price and top notch service. I would highly recommend
Larry to any and all.
Blair Stewart, Orleans
We had an unexpected drive failure in our NAS drive with all our honeymoon pics, daughter's baby pics and more, along with freelance work and other files. We were heart broken, but Larry managed to recover the data in a few days and at about $150 less than the bigger data recovery places. Prompt service and great communication. I learned my lesson with backing up data, but I'll definitely be referring anyone who's in a similar spot.
Gavin Doak, Ottawa
What a great experience! Fixed the problem in no time at all! A far cry from the poor experience that Best Buy had provided and still didn’t fix the problem. Highly recommend Larry and his services.
Frank Manson, Kanata
Fast, efficient, reasonable and correct diagnosis. Will continue to work with Sabo Computer Repairs from here forward.

I would highly recommend Larry handling data recovery issues, especially dealing with the most difficult mechanical failures. Larry helped diagnose the drive's issue over e-mail, until which point I was confident that a head swap from a donor drive may be required. I dropped the drive off to Larry and by the next day I received notification that the data has been recovered. I find that he is passionate about the work that he performs, is honest by having a straight forward pricing structure, and is extremely fast in the service delivery. I would definitely use his services again when the need arises.
K. Kim, Nepean
Larry took on quite a difficult external hard drive failure that I had been struggling with for months and systematically salvaged all of the data I had on the drive. He kept me updated daily as to what issues he was encountering, possible fixes, and estimated cost of the service each step of the way. After trying multiple approaches it was really looking bleak for the data. However, Larry proved to be more persistent than the problem and was eventually able to recover and transfer everything I thought I had lost. I took the drive to Larry after reading these testimonials and am very pleased that I did.

I spilled water on my computer and given that it was my business computer, I was in total panic. I also hadn't backed up my data in ages!
I brought a newly purchased computer to Larry and over the next couple of days he transferred all of the information from my old computer onto the new one. Relief doesn't begin to explain how I felt. He even put his own personal taxes aside until all of my computer problems were resolved. Now that's dedication!

Larry Sabo came recommended to me as a person with high work ethics. Over the past couple of years, he has proven to be an invaluable source of knowledge, assistance and honesty. He is always willing to help. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Gerry Dore, Ottawa
Thorough, knowledgeable and friendly! Would not hesitate to use Larry's services in the future!
Wendy Jenkins, Stittsville
I am Larry Sabo's biggest fan! I had a 1TB hard drive that had hundreds and hundreds of precious pictures. When it stopped working I had no hope of retrieving those memories! I happened upon Mr. Sabo's ad on kijiji and decided to give him a try, and I am so happy I did! He is efficient, courteous and knowledgable! He responds to emails very promptly and was constantly updating me with what he was doing. All of this was done at a veryyy reasonable price! The man is a miracle worker!! Needless to say, I will be opting for Larry's services for any future hardware or software needs. He has wildly exceeded my expectations!
Thank you Larry!!

If you want a wonderful person to help upgrade, fix, tune-up, troubleshoot for your computer, we just had the best fellow we have ever had. He was formerly a programmer for IBM and knows absolutely everything about computer hardware and software. His fees are also excellent ($60 per hour) and he can even put on a programme for you that allows him to use your computer (when you allow him to) so that he can fix it and save you money with travel costs. He helps people this way who go away on vacation or when he is away as well. He can be reached at Larry@SaboComputer Repairs.com or at (613) 592-8485.

For weeks we have been trying to recover a specialized program from one of our failing PCs. No matter what we tried, the laptop just did not want to boot up. Within 48 hours, Larry Sabo from Sabo Computer Repairs determined that the hard drive had many unreadable sectors and recovered all of the files and data that were not corrupted. Although Windows was damaged beyond repair, Larry did recover the critical program's installer and documents that had not been backed up. We appreciated Larry's perseverance and determination to find a solution where most others would have given up.

I honestly thought my computer's time had come and that the problems were too serious to be fixed. I found Larry's website and called him. He came to our house on short notice, took the time and made a conscientious effort to solve ALL of our very challenging issues. He provided excellent service and cost effective advice to improve the functioning and security of our computer. He is a delightful and very professional "miracle worker" who my husband and I would not hesitate to highly recommend for all your computer needs. Thanks so much, Larry!
Bob Abrams and Jan Clegg, Stittsville
Dealing with Larry Sabo has been an absolute and unexpected delight! After having several "less than satisfactory" experiences with techies at some of the big box stores, I was determined to find someone who would offer great service, fair pricing and speak to me in language I could understand. Larry spent more time on my computer than he charged for (that would NEVER happen at a big box store) gave me a very detailed itemization of the work that was done and did it all in an amazingly short turnaround time. I am completely happy with the service, the pricing and the person!
Grace Madden, Barrhaven
I'm happy to report the computer is still functioning well three weeks later. You did a great job solving and correcting the mysterious hard drive issues and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to my friends.
S. Moffatt, Ottawa
After rebooting, two hard drives became undetectable in the BIOS and in Windows Vista. Due to known issues with specific Seagate hard drives, Larry suggested that the firmware be repaired then updated. He did so and recovered all of my personal files with same-day turnaround. I will continue to use Larry for all of my computer issues, and highly recommend his services.
Paul Khoury, Ottawa
I have had the pleasure of meeting Larry and have him work on my computer. I don't usually send testimonials but was so pleased to find a person who is honest and does expert work. Thank you!
Pat Flanagan, Kanata
Larry, I am writing to thank you very much for the recent service we received from you. My daughter had spent many hours working on an assignment for school, and when she went to print it, it had somehow been lost on our computer. I called you early the next morning, and you agreed to look at it immediately. Within a few hours, you had recovered her data, lost the night before. You certainly saved the day! You not only recovered her data, but also did a complete clean up of our computer. When I picked it up later that afternoon, you kindly took the time to explain the reasoning the data may have been lost, and how to prevent it from possibly happening again in the future. Your service was fast and efficient and I will certainly recommend you to others.
J. Saunders, Kanata
I am writing to say thank you for fixing my computer and for the excellent service I received. You went to great lengths to repair what I perceived as an unrepairable problem and all was done in a very timely manner. It was a good experience for me and therefore I would not hesitate to give your number to my friends and family. Once again, a big thanks.
B. Stephens, Carleton Place
Hi Larry. I was extremely pleased with the work you did for me, moving all my information to my new computer. In retrospect, I wish I had sought your advice and input before purchasing my new computer -- it would have saved me a lot of money. Also, the frustration of being promised service by Best Buy and not receiving it. I hope this note will be used as a recommendation to other seniors who feel they need a new computer or repairs. Thank You Again.
Wayne Doherty, Kanata
Who to call? Who to call? When I recently realized my laptop was infected and would need a professional to clean it up, I checked for reputable Computer Repair Services on Kijiji. I chose Larry's ad and after reading the information available on his website, decided Larry was my guy. After an exchange of emails with him, he suggested his Remote Support service to get my laptop back in tip-top shape. A phone call, a few keystrokes, and an access code and Larry was able to remotely repair all the issues on my laptop.
It was very helpful to have Larry on the phone, while he was remotely clicking through all the problems and explaining to me what he was doing. Larry was courteous, knowledgeable, and reassured me my laptop would survive! I didn't have to wait days... he offered convenient same-day service and I didn't even have to leave my home. I would highly recommend Sabo Computer Repairs and definitely recommend Remote Support service if your problems lend themselves to this option. Larry is now on Speed Dial should I require his assistance in the future! Thank you Larry for promptly responding to me and for your excellent service!
